I love runkeeper for running but the cycling option doesn’t work on my I watch. It logs time and nothing else and for that i give the app 2 stars.
With decoupling of the Apple Watch from the iPhone I can no longer get heartbeat information in my headphone if I start the app from my iPhone. Before decoupling I connect my wireless headset to my iPhone starts the Runkeeper app from iPhone, listen to Sirius XM from iPhone and during get current speed, distance, heart rate, average speed. Note that SiriusXM is not available on Apple Watch. Stay with the old version for those who hasn’t upgraded yet. How do I downgrade back to the previous BETTER version?
Ever since the last update or two this app is having issues. When I go to look at my “Activities” about 70% of my recorded runs have a red triangle and say “couldn’t synch activities”. Never had this issue before. Also the voice or coaching? was turned on by updating the app. I never had it turned on and now it makes noise on my Apple Watch. Please stop updating if you are going to take this app backwards. Why do I have problems now saving almost all of my recorded runs?
I’ve been having issues syncing and losing data and I’ve tried all fixes. Today I actually had an appointment with the Genius Bar at the Apple store. They went through my phone and watch and still were not able to fix the issue, so obviously it’s an app flaw. Is there an update coming soon? Great App for years...until recently.
Their Apple Watch app keep crashing and took too much time trying to set it up. I ended up downloading a different running app
I have been using it for almost 3 years. It is fantastic. Keep track of your daily walks and a summary for each month Almost 2,000 miles of walking- excellent tracking of miles- elevation difference- calories burnt!
This is a solid app to track your workouts.
I really love the app overall! However, the Apple Watch app needs help! I ran a workout today and at the very end the app crashed and I lost all of my activity. Also when running surges you do not get any interval bells or info.
So I used this app several years ago, back when I was actively running. I had a heart issue that put a halt to that, but now I’m able to start running again. I downloaded Runkeeper yesterday thinking it would be the same great app, but there’s been a lot of changes. Initially I thought the app just became a bit slicker, which is fine. But now I see you have to have a subscription for any training plan. Those used to be free, or at least some of them were. So then I thought the 5k training plan was the only free one, which I was willing to work with, but after the first few runs I notice that’s behind a subscription too! I understand the app and developers need to make money for their work, but it would’ve been nice to at least have a couple training plans that were still free. I always loved Runkeeper, but I already have several subscriptions to other apps and really don’t want to have to add another. Everything is a subscription these days which is kinda annoying. I’d rather just pay a one time flat fee. Oh well. Guess I’ll see what other free run apps are out there.
I have been using run keeper for years, but all of a sudden it has stopped syncing with my Apple Watch. I’ll start my run on my phone, but it never appears on my watch (the start button never goes away). I tried reinstalling the app on my phone and watch, but it still isn’t syncing.
